Bad Lobster/bad food..Castine, Maine

Ah, beautiful Castine, Maine....wonderful little town...looking for a quick lunch....found a really bad one: Denetts on the Wharf....the most disgusting Lobster Roll (at $17.95) /food/everything we've ever had.....served with rancid potato chips...disgusting. So, now we know: If you're on a tight schedule or have kids in tow you'll find good food at the Variety Store on the corner..but you'll have to fight the locals for a place in line....and don't forget to get a few of the best homemade whoopie pies in the state! We left Castine wishing we had just had lunch at Pearl Oyster Bar back home in NYC. Pearl's lobster roll in the Castine setting would have been heaven on earth!
